Andy Saunders

Created by Andy Saunders, Lighthouse Ministries aims to support and resource local churches in their ministry to children and families both in and out of the church.

Andy has been involved in children’s and family ministry for about as long as he can remember. Starting as a volunteer in the Sunday School at his local church, he is now just as likely to be found on the stage at Spring Harvest or running a children’s camp in the heart of Dorset. He has worked at Scripture Union as a Children’s and Family Evangelist, tutored at Moorlands College, and most recently worked as the Children’s and Family Adviser for the Diocese of Winchester.

Lighthouse Ministries enables him to draw on this rich experience to support churches and organisations who want to build creative and thriving ministries amongst the children and families in their communities. Check out the website at:
